I reviewed the Audience ClairAudient 1+1 loudspeakers, now called V1, in June this year. Just after I returned the speakers, John McDonald of Audience called and said there were two updated version of the Audience ClairAudient 1+1, namely the V2 and V2+. I have heard both and each is a major improvement over the originals that I reviewed in June. That doesn’t change the fact that everything I said in the review is still true about the V1 version.
Before we talk about the difference in sound though, I should tell you about the physical differences between the three versions. All three versions look exactly the same from the front or the sides, and that is a very fine looking speaker, indeed. On the back of V2+, you will notice different binding post, and that is the only difference you can see between the three versions.
